Adrian Harrington Rare Books can be found on the first floor of 20-22 Chapel Place. Chapel Place is a busy cul-de-sac between the High Street and The Pantiles, which is accessible from London Road and is about a five minute walk down hill from Tunbridge Wells Station. A bus stop is about thirty metres from the front door, which is currently served by the 281, a regular service between the Pantiles and the top of the town. The surrounding area is well lit by street lighting, and the shop's bright blue and white exterior is easily visible. The street is on an incline which can be slippery in wet or cold weather.


There is no parking outside the shop, though it can be used as a drop-off point. The nearest three areas for disabled parking are Linden Road Car Park behind The Pantiles, the Torrington Car Park accessible through Vale Avenue, and at the Station. Parking is free for an unlimited period for Blue Badge holders in car parks run by Tunbridge Wells Borough Council.
